Bangladesh to face Sri Lanka today

Bangladesh will face host Sri Lanka in the third T20I of the tri-nation Nidahas Trophy at the R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo today evening (Saturday). The match will begin at 7:30 pm (Bangladesh time). Bangladesh and Sri Lanka are at opposite ends of the confidence spectrum as they face up in the Nidahas Trophy. The visiting side could not register win in any international match since January 23. Tigers lost two One Day Internationals (ODIs), two Tests and three T20s at home. They lost 13 of their last 14 T20Is and will need to find ways to get back their form. Sri Lanka on the other hand looked like complete reverse with their success in Bangladesh. The host also secured a five-wicket win against India in the opener of the seven-match Nidahas Trophy showing their level of confidence while Bangladesh started the tournament campaign conceding a six-wicket loss against India on Thursday. Bangladesh XI (probable): Tamim Iqbal, Soumya Sarkar, Liton Kumar Das, Mushfiqur Rahim, Mahmudullah Riyad (captain), Sabbir Rahman, Mehidy Hasan, Mustafizur Rahman, Taskin Ahmed, Rubel Hossain and Nazmul Islam. Sri Lanka XI (probable): Danushka Gunathilaka, Kusal Mendis, Kusal Perera, Dinesh Chandimal (captain), Upul Tharanga, Dasun Shanaka, Thisara Perera, Jeevan Mendis, Akila Dananjaya, Dushmantha Chameera and Nuwan Pradeep.
